    it's a Euro clone, probably Belgian or Dutch , does the steel shell have any type of stampings or markings? like US CH or VDN?

    By the look of the green 'cloth' liner chinstrap, (tucked into the liner)
    it's Belgian....

    Again there is a lot of these doing the rounds at the moment, due to most Nato and other European countries moving away from harden steel combat helmets to ones based around Kevlar or similar. Most surplus wholesalers seem to have ether Belgian, Dutch or other European M1 clones in there stores at the moment. So as Michael Caine would probably say, if they made a film about it.
